---- — LONDONDERRY — It’s that time of year again when nature is calling.
Londonderry Trailways invites people to come out and enjoy some of the community’s trails.
Guided fall walks on the trail system’s Peat Bog section will be held Sept. 28 and Oct. 27 at 3 p.m.
The walks will be led by Trailways board member Dr. John Daey.
The Peat Bog trail is about 1.4 miles long and is the longest section of Londonderry’s Rail Trail uninterrupted by roadways.
This trail also recently was awarded a federal $100,000 matching fund Land and Water Grant
Rail Trail project coordinator Bob Rimol said this section of the trail offers a lot of scenery.
“You will likely see some wildlife and hopefully some fall color,” he said.
Trail walks are free and open to the public.
Other Londonderry trail news includes the engineering work starting for a one-mile section of trail that will be paved running from the Exit 5 park-and-ride at Symmes Drive to North Elementary School’s parking lot.
This work is funded by the warrant article passed by voters in March. Money was available in July and the bidding process began.
Daniel T. Ladd Construction Company will do the work.
“This is the step we have been working on to accomplish,” Rimol said. “Soon we will have our first section of the Rail Trail complete.”
Londonderry’s section of the Rail Trail, when fully complete, will be 6.4 miles long.
